Kras (The Classical Karst) and the development of karst science
Andrej Kranjc - (27/1,1998)
The author presents the main characteristics of the country Kras, from where the term karst is derived, the origin and the meaning of the name itself and the reasons why just this country is the "locus typicus" of the term. In more detail he speaks about the authors who spread the word karst for limestone countries in general (in the middle of the 19th century) and also the authors who founded the karstology as science at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century.
